American singer and song-writer Mariah Carey tops the Billboard charts in four separate decades.

Mariah has had a long list of hits over the years, but her classic holiday song has helped her make history.

‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ is number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week dated January 4, 2020.

That means Mariah Carey has had a number one single in the 1990s, 2000s, 2010s and 2020s.

The bubbly, ubiquitous holiday tune firstly released in 1994 and gained new fame after its inclusion on the soundtrack for the 2003 film Love.

But, it only topped the charts for the first time in late 2019.

A change in Billboard’s rules which included it on the top songs list.

Carey dropped a new video for it — which counts towards Hot 100 placement — and released the song as a standalone CD single for the first time.

It is her 19th number one hit, according to Billboard.

It puts her just one song behind The Beatles’ overall record of 20 top songs.

The singer says, “time is not something I acknowledge.”

Mariah was low-key about her history-making achievement.

“Yaaaaaaaaay!!! WE. DID. IT,” Carey wrote on Twitter, with a stream of champagne and party emojis.

“But…. what’s a decade?,” she added.
